Substantially revised and updated, the Fourth Edition of Statistical Reasoning reflects the changes that have occurred in the field of psychological statistics over the past decade. This revision has been made with an eye towards the statistics student, focusing on conceptual growth. The text develops an understanding of statistical logic and procedures, the properties of statistical devices, the importance of the assumptions underlying statistical tools, and an understanding of what happens with the strict requirements of statistical theory meet the circumstances of real-world data.
